I thought I posted this earlier, but it looks like I did not.  Here is S. Rep. 113-266, in support of S. 2299, which would amend the Native American Programs Act of 1974 to
reauthorize a provision to ensure the survival and continuing vitality
of Native American languages.

The purpose of S. 2299 is to provide additional flexibility for and
the reauthorization of the Esther Martinez Native Languages Preservation
Act grant program, which is administered by the Administration
for Native Americans in the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services.

The article is here, from Navajo Times.  An excerpt:

After hours of seemingly endless debating, the Navajo Nation Council voted just after midnight to remove the Navajo language requirement from qualifications to run for Navajo Nation President.

Pro tem Speaker LoRenzo Bates had to step in and break a 10 to 10 tie to pass the resolution as people in the audience cheered.After hours of seemingly endless debating, the Navajo Nation Council voted just after midnight to remove the Navajo language requirement from qualifications to run for Navajo Nation President.

In breaking the tie, Bates said he was prepared to deal with the consequences of his vote, Bates’ vote gives Chris Deschene, who was disqualified by the Office of Hearings and Appeals on Oct. 9, another chance to get back on the ballot.
